VU's Wond’ry Launches First Faculty BioMedical Ideator Cohort to Foster Medical Entrepreneurship

The Wond'ry recently hosted its first Faculty BioMedical Ideator cohort. The program curriculum was based around the Sullivan Family Ideator Program, which helps aspiring university-affiliated innovators (students, staff, faculty and alumni) evaluate and develop their ideas by teaching an evidence-based approach to idea evaluation and offering expert mentorship and access to resources. 

Launched in January by Daniel Fabbri, PhD, director of Informatics Innovation at VUMC; Mark Hilton, PhD, Program Manager of Entrepreneurship at the Wond'ry; and Cameron Russ, Program Coordinator of Biomedical Entrepreneurship of Biomedical Innovation at the Wond'ry, the program participants learned ways to evaluate the commercial value and tech-transfer potential of their research. Participants were also eligible to receive microgrants if they demonstrated a strong commitment to their idea and its merit.
